Lakeside wildlife control tip of the month:
How do I know if there are baby raccoons in the attic?
Your home is intended to be your castle, but when critters decide that it is the perfect home for them as well, they can quickly turn your dream home into a house of horrors. Many animals, such as squirrels, bats, and rats, not only carry diseases, but they leave a mess wherever they go. This is why getting rid of them is imperative, especially before they are able to have babies.
Raccoons are an animal like this that no one, including Lakeside wildlife removal wants in their home. They are horrific in so many ways, and can be a real disaster if you are looking to keep your dream home looking like a dream. They surely must go if they have babies and are living in your attic.
The problem is that you may not know if they are in your attic or not. If you are like most people, you may not go into your attic but once or twice a year if that. Your attic is not a place you find any necessity to visit, and so if some animal was making a home there you would most likely have no idea whatsoever. That is what makes this such a problem for Lakeside exterminators. You may not even know you have a problem.
So how do you or Lakeside animal trapping know if a momma raccoon has laid her babies in your attic? Here are some tell-tale signs that this may have happened.
The first thing Lakeside animal control will realize is that the mother will still be out foraging at night. She needs nourishment to be able to support her kittens, and so you should see her out and about at night if you look. Raccoons only forage at night, so when it is dark take a look around your home and see if you see a raccoon with nipples around. If you do, then she has probably just laid her litter.
Also listen at night for sounds of scratching or little foot tapping. Yes, they do not weigh much, that is true, but they still have weight. They will be scurrying around and if you keep things really quiet you should hear them. Make sure you wait until dark before you decide to listen.
If you think there are raccoons, do a look around in your attic. You do not need to go very far in to see. Just take a look to see if you can spot any areas where a nest has clearly been built.
